Representative Text

1 Far out on the mounWtain of sin I had wandered,
Far out on the mountain so dreary and cold;
When gently I heard a sweet voice to me calling,
“Oh come back thou lost one, come into the fold.”

Refrain:
Come home, come home,
The Saviour is watching for thee,
Oh list to the voice that so sweetly is calling,
“My love hath redeem’d thee, Oh come unto me.”

2 So long I have sought thee, and patiently waited
So long I have sought Thee—O listen to me;
My love hath redeem’d thee O come back dear lost one,
My love that redeem’d thee, Oh come unto me.” [Refrain]

3 Come all who are wandering, footsore and weary,
Come trust in His love, ‘tis so boundless and free;
Oh hear His sweet voice as ‘tis now gently calling,
“Oh come back my loved one, Oh come unto me.” [Refrain]
